WHAT AFFECTS RANGE?

As with gasoline-fueled cars, electric vehicle range can be affected—and maximized—by several factors including but not limited to:*

* Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance and lithium-ion battery age.

AGGRESSIVE DRIVING

Heavy acceleration may have a negative impact on the vehicle’s state of charge, whereas a steady pace can help preserve the range.

CLIMATE

Extremely hot or cold outside temperatures can affect how well a battery can maintain a charge. To help reduce the impact heating and cooling systems have on range, electric vehicles can be preconditioned** ahead of departure while the car is still charging.

 

** Effectiveness of cabin conditioning may be reduced by extreme outside temperatures or when using 120-volt charging

REGENERATIVE BRAKING

The Regenerative Braking System is capable of capturing and reusing more than 90% of the braking energy normally lost during the braking process and recharges the high-voltage battery.

 

Results may vary based on driving habits.
